Gina Michelle Bisignano aka Coronavirus lockdown Karen goes on homophobic rant during Los Angeles protest. Captured on video as social media responds.
Who doesn’t enjoy being hated by the world? A maskless woman wearing a ‘Trump 2020’ sweater has been dubbed a ‘Karen’ after being captured on video going on a homophobic rant and calling a person a ‘f*****’ during a protest criticizing California coronavirus lockdowns.
It all happened this past Sunday as a group of about 50 protesters gathered outside the Echo Park home of Los Angeles County Department of Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer to criticize the county’s latest coronavirus restrictions, as neighbors came out to defy them.
‘You’re a f*****. You’re disgusting!’
At the demonstration a woman named Gina Michelle Bisignano, who was wearing a Trump-supporting sweater and seemingly a huge fan of conspicuous plastic surgery, was observed getting into a fiery verbal dispute with one anti-protester, and was soon using offensive homophobic slurs. Press play immediately above:
‘You’re a f*****. You’re disgusting. You’re disgusting. You’re a new world order Satanist. And you guys are all for it,’ the unhinged woman was caught on video saying.
A person behind the camera challenges her saying, ‘Say it again. Say it again.’
‘You’re such a liberal piece of s***.’
‘You’re a f*****. What are you a guy or a girl? And I’m gonna tell you something else. You’re a Nazi and you’re brainwashed by MK Ultra,’ Bisignano vociferously retorts, referencing the top secret CIA program that consisted of experiments on human subjects meant develop drugs and procedures for interrogations.
A man behind her intervenes and says, ‘We’re not here for that. We just want the state to open back up so we can get our lives back.’
‘Yeah that’s all we want. Is there something wrong with not wanting to have a lockdown? Is there something wrong with freedom?’ Bisignano added.
‘You’re such a liberal piece of s***. I bet you had an abortion this morning,’ she says to the person she called a slur.
According to TMZ, Bisignano later took to Facebook to say ‘I was attacked online’ following video of the weekend incident going viral, only to later delete the post.
Bisignano shared a livestream the event on Facebook on Sunday saying: ‘This is not Cuba! What’s crazy is locking us in the house.’
In that clip when another neighbor mocked her she said: ‘No one cares about you, Joe Biden don’t care about you. When they come to take away your freedom, then you’re really going to wish you listened to us.’
Some hostility between neighbors and protesters. One protester calls a neighbor “disgusting” and a “new world order satanist.” She later uses a homosexual slur at the neighbor. pic.twitter.com/EMtj7dSsKL
